In a recent appearance on Telefoot, Bixente Lizarazu, former French international and World Cup-winning defender, provided insightful reflections on comparisons involving the current football sensation, Kylian Mbappe. He also discussed comparisons with former star Cristiano Ronaldo.

As Mbappe approaches his 25th birthday, many are contemplating his career at Paris Saint-Germain. The retired footballer-turned-commentator highlighted striking similarities between the two players, shedding light on Mbappe's potential trajectory in the world of football.

"Everything he does is phenomenal," remarked Lizarazu to the French media (h/t Le10Sport). "We don't realize, it's abnormal. He has the magical power to turn a game around on his own whenever he wants. He has done it many times; he scares defenses and instills confidence in his teammates."

It will be interesting to see if the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner follows Ronaldo's path by heading to Real Madrid. The Paris Saint-Germain winger will become a free agent in June. Before making a decision, Mbappe's choice will likely depend on PSG's performance in the UEFA Champions League.

Real Madrid seems eager to finalize this signing during the January transfer window and not let it linger into the rest of the 2023-24 season. Therefore, the saga will unfold uninterrupted in the coming weeks.
